Would you like to know what went on in Mäntymäki on spring evenings in the 1960s? Or which one was the best hook-up restaurant in town for sexual minorities? Come and join a guided tour exploring the streets, homes, bars, parks and bushes of yesterday’s Helsinki and see the city from a queer perspective. The tour will make you see familiar locations in a new light and shake up ossified views.

Guided by Iisa Aaltonen The tour will be conducted in Finnish. Free entry! The event is part of the Queer History Month programme.
